Who We Are
The ARK Foundation of Dayton, Inc. is an independent local Biblical Creation Science and history group, also known as ARKY (getting Absolute Real Knowledge (ARK) and You together) because the Bible is the only known absolute source of knowledge and it is for you. We believe it is the best starting point for wisdom. ARKY is promoting an increase in knowledge of the facts in favor of creation by God and the problems (usually unstated in schools and the press) with evolution. We promote and educate via: monthly meetings, triannual newsletter, sending speakers to invited locations, and having a vision to build a Biblical Worldview for individuals, families, Churches, and our government leadership.
Statement of Faith
We believe in the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. This includes reading narrative sections as historically accurate and not allegories. Specifically we believe the Genesis account of a six day literal creation and the seven day week with a rest day to admire and reflect on the Creator who performed the works, design, and wonder of those six days. We believe that death came as a result of sin, in a global flood, salvation by faith through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Hope of the resurrection to come. We adhere to the traditional doctrines of the church as stated in Apostles', Nicene and Athanasian creeds. 

We believe Biblical Truth first, and scientific theory second, especially since science defines itself as always changing. We believe good science flows from an honest understanding of Biblical Truth. And in questionable areas, is a servant of the Bible. We believe God is who He says He is and are committed to exposing these truths to the general public. 

We meet every 2nd Monday of the month in an educational meeting featuring local creation speakers or educational DVD. We also sponsor more prominent speakers for our annual banquet.  Monthly meetings are currently at Faith Christian Fellowship, 1778 Grange Hall Rd Beavercreek, OH 45432.
Who do we support
ARKY supports 
  1. The entire family! Let's learn about what it takes to gain an accurate knowledge of science and history. We seek to help parents and children alike see that they can have complete confidence in the truth of the Bible from the very first verse to the very last. 
  2. Answers in Genesis! Ten percent of all membership dues are given to AiG. It is our support to a national and international creation ministry. We believe exactly as they do, but do our ministry on the local southwestern Ohio and Southeastern Indiana areas.
  3. We promote trips to the Creation Museum and provide discount (group rate without needing a full group) tickets to use at any time during the year.
  4. We buy materials from other like minded ministries and by that method also support their efforts. 
  5. The Christian Communications networks in their effort to raise the spiritual level of our community (and country).

ARK Vision:  The ARK vision is to enable and help build a Biblical Worldview for individuals, families, Churches, and our government leadership. This raises the spiritual and educational awareness of our communities of the truthfulness and reliability of the Bible supported by the Bible, history, and science. We promote Biblical Creation Science & History Museums like the Creation Museum in Kentucky.
ARK Mission:  Evangelize by attracting and leading people to a legitimate belief of the Bible for their lives. Encourage: Show that our faith does not end with science. Educate: Develop people to understand the honest design found in God's creation. Equip: Empower people for service in their churches, homes, and community with confidence, information, and expertise about science, history, and Biblical knowledge.
ARK Methods:  We will show this by all effective means available and train others to defend these truths by leadership, scholarship, and making tools available for education and entertainment. Roles needed are:
  • Board: Pray, Encourage, Oversee, Correct, Fund Raising, Direction, Vision.
  • Chairman: Coordination, Administration, Leadership.
  • Officers: Assist Chairman and board.
  • AFC: The ARK Founders Club is the Advisors and Leaders responsible and accountable for actions of other Groups and activities within ARK. They are also first and foremost those wanting to learn and teach others about the valid information available in great abundance today on Biblical Creation Science and History.
  • Supporters: Pray, finance, learn, encourage, train, and volunteer.
  • This is not a geographically restricted plan. Each person can have a part in it from where ever they are by correspondence, building/making needed items, starting area groups, fundraising, attending, and participating in meetings, etc. In other words, you can buy a Ford without living in Detroit! You can help without being here and we thank you for being willing.

    Goal:  We are building up the knowledge of our Creator for the Glory of our Lord.
    Motto:  Jesus, our Creator, Redeemer, and coming King.
